Shine A Light on Child Abuse in Kenya

by Childline Kenya Vetted since 2011

Summary

Childline Kenya works to STOP child abuse by creating a safe environment and opportunities to report abuse through the only nationwide helpline service dedicated to children that runs 24 hours toll free. Every month, we provide more than 100 child victims of abuse with access to rescue, counseling, safe shelter, medical care, legal support, and reintegration. This project aims to raise funds to assist ALL children whose cases are reported and who require child protection services.

Challenge

There is inadequate funding to respond to all the child abuse cases reported and Childline Kenya ends up providing bare minimum services to survivors of abuse. However, more is required. These children require legal support (which can go on for years); continuous counseling for the survivor and their family and economic empowerment for their family to ensure the child does not become susceptible again to abuse (especially child labour).

Solution

This project will ensure that EVERY child whose case is reported to the child helpline in Kenya receives high quality counseling and emergency support (rescue, legal support, counseling, shelter and medical aid). The target is at least 300 survivors of child abuse on a monthly basis. Through this project, the helpline's capacity will be increased to receive more reports from children in need of care and support from all over Kenya. Every child's voice MUST be heard.

Long-Term Impact

Childline Kenya aims at ensuring each child is heard and their rights upheld at all times. In the long run we will raise a generation of holistic individuals who will uphold the culture of child protection thus making the world a better place to live in. Every child should receive the services they need, when they need it. Childline will make this a reality for at least 300 children per month in emergency situations. These children will also be empowered to be child protection ambassadors.
